Game of Apocalypse - Chapter 31
Chapter 31 A New Skill
Without turning his body, Watson conjured an ice barrier in front of Odin. Although it wasn’t huge, it was thick enough. Failing to stop in time, Odin’s fist slammed straight at the ice barrier and blood began to seep out of his hand.
It seemed like it was a Spirit Warlock who knew ice-elemental skill.
Gritting his teeth, Odin approached Watson from the side. As his hands danced, countless skills were launched. Watson’s ice-elemental skill should have a cooldown, so right now both of them were having a pure fight between spirits.
The Strength and Agility of the fusion technique were exceptional. Odin’s kick on Watson’s spirit form caused him to tremble and it was a symptom of an unstable spirit.
“Don’t you think every time this kid attacks, his power, and speed are increasing?!” The female questioned Nancy with astonishment. She hoped it was her mistake but the current power and speed of Odin’s current combat technique were in a different league from his initial one.
“He’s even a genius, it’s getting more and more interesting. Now let’s see if Watson can defeat him or not. Both of our combined attacks should be insufficient to defeat him, there’s no point to waste the energy. Besides, one of us is lying on the ground.” Nancy sarcastically glanced at the male who was lying on the ground. It was he who said the officers were simple-minded but his current state was no different from the officers.
The ruckus caused by the fight between Watson and Odin was huge, so logically someone should have discovered it a long time ago. However, the surroundings were still pitch-black and as silent as a grave. Judging from it, some kind of barrier was set up in this territory. Therefore, deliberately letting Odin enter was a trap. Odin’s gaze pierced Watson’s spirit form as his Qi energy burst out all of a sudden.
According to time ticked away, Watson’s ice-elemental skill should be readied once again. Odin was attempting to destroy the ice barrier using his Qi energy.
As imagined, Watson activated his ice-elemental skill again. But this time it wasn’t an ice barrier, it was twelve small icicles charging at Odin like an arrow.
Odin steadily expanded his Qi energy as the air distorted, forming a natural barrier halting the icicles in front of him. As if something was wrapping Odin, no matter how much the icicles charged, they remained immobilized.
Darkening his face, Watson failed to imagine Odin was such a tough opponent. Exerting his strength, Watson’s body became even transparent and the icicles finally flew forward.
Odin fired a set of combat techniques in midair while his Qi energy grew more violent and the initial charging icicles halted again. Controlling his Qi energy, Odin reversed the direction of the icicles and launched them at Watson.
“Heh, how laughable. Do you think I can be hit by my own skill?” Watching Odin’s redundant action, Watson formed a seal with his hands as all of the icicles vanished.
“I wouldn’t be so sure about that.” The next moment, Odin’s voice echoed right next to Watson’s ear. With a smile of triumph, Odin’s punch hammered right at Watson’s face.
The huge tremor caused Watson to stuff his spirit form back into his body and a mouthful of blood was spat out.
“How is this possible?!” Watson stared at Odin in disbelief. Odin had smashed Watson’s spirit form back into his physical body.
“If I’m not mistaken, your spirit form is in the most vulnerable state after releasing the ice-elemental skill since the edges of your spirit form become blurry. Just now, reversing the icicles’ direction was to attract your attention, making you believe this was all I have. However, after the icicles were reversed, I’m already right behind you.” Stomping his feet on Watson’s leg, Odin made Watson kneel on the ground.
The healer female next to them was anxious and rushed forward, trying to heal Watson. But she could get near to him, Odin punched her abdomen, making her fall unconscious.
Only Nancy remained, biting her lips while viciously glaring at Odin. She was clear he couldn’t win against the person before her. If she charged forward as well, then it would be a complete wipeout.
“I’ll ask you a question first.” Squatting down, Odin pressed Watson’s face making him face Odin. “Chris, that kid, did you kill him?” Odin expressionlessly stared at Watson and prepared to break his neck if he was being dishonest.
“Who… is Chris?” Due to being pressed by Odin, Watson’s voice was hoarse, and unable to speak properly.
“The kid who was heavily injured by me that morning in the woods. Don’t tell me you have no idea about it.” Odin spoke as he exerted force on his hand, causing a rattling noise to come out of Watson’s skull.
“It’s that kid being unlucky. Who told him to lack Qi energy and was targeted by Nancy. It was a coincidence for him to be sucked clean since we didn’t know he spared with you before.” Watson described it as if describing an ant with traces of disdain.
All of a sudden, Waston and the unconscious duo were wrapped by a black mist as a black vortex suddenly appeared in the midair, sucking all three of them followed by Nancy disappearing too.
Within three seconds, Odin was the only one left in the open space. Such a sudden change made Odin unable to respond. He had consumed a huge amount of Qi energy and his brain was slightly dizzy right now. Gradually standing up, Odin sat on the wooden bench beside him.
The vortex just now probably was Nancy’s skill and it seemed to be a spatial skill. Unsure how it was activated but Odin guessed it was constrained by time and spirit energy. If this skill could be used at will, then the victor of the fight just now might be different.
Sitting on the bench Odin readjusted his breath, attempting to recover his Qi energy when strange energy emerged within his body. Soon, a message box appeared before him.
【A new skill can be learned. Do you wish to learn it?】
Without a second thought, Odin selected yes.
【Two choices are available.】
【Attack skill – Ice skill, Level 1, Freeze. Consume 500 EXP and 2 points of Mental.】
【Healing skill – Forest skill, Level 1, Breath of Forest. Consume 350 EXP and 3 points of Mental.】
【Please select the skill wished to be learned.】
Odin slightly hesitated before choosing the attack skill. Since his combat technique was proficient enough, an attack skill was the icing on the cake.
